About Friday

A lot can happen between Thursday and Saturday... Before the sun sets, Craig (Ice Cube) must get his friend out of trouble, find a new job so his parents don't evict him, escape his girlfriend long enough to capture a new woman's heart (Debbie, played by Nia Long), and survive a climactic confrontation with the neighborhood menace (Tom Lister Jr. as Deebo). The incredible ensemble cast also features John Witherspoon, Anna Maria Hartsford, Regina King, Faizon Love, Chris Tucker, and DJ Pooh. [91 min; comedy, drama; English]

"Synthesizes blaxploitation and pot-comedy genres and melds them into a colossus of unending laughs." — Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star

"[Friday] offers a fascinating glimpse at the way street life enters pop culture." — Caryn James, New York Times

"Dirty, offensive, infantile and may launch a few sanctimonious opinion columns. And I mean that in the nicest way." — Desson Thomson, Washington Post
